You still have time to enter Gluten Free Philly's most popular giveaway yet - a "Sweet Treats" prize pack from Betty Crocker featuring all four varieties of the company's gluten-free dessert mixes. The giveaway runs until Sunday night. For more details and to enter, check out Monday's post.

On Wednesday, I wrote about the gluten-free and gluten-free/sugar-free pizzelle made by Dee Tees'. The cookies can be found in many stores and markets in the Delaware Valley.

On the restaurant front, Grandma's Grotto in Horsham, Pennsylvania now serves gluten-free pizza from Still Riding Pizza, along with no-gluten pasta. (Thanks to a reader for the tip.) The eatery also offers gluten-free lasagna, baked ziti and meatballs, and will soon be installing a separate fryer for french fries.

Reader Tom commented that Jasper, a French-influenced BYOB in Downingtown, Pennsylvania is gluten-free friendly.

Iron Hill Brewery, with locations in Media, North Wales, Phoenixville and West Chester, Pennsylvania, Maple Shade, New Jersey, and Newark and Wilmington, Delaware, has posted its gluten-free menu online. Although there's no gluten-free beer brewed on the premises, the restaurants do serve Redbridge by the bottle.
